Overview

Styling and Features

Creating a style guide for your website will prove to be invaluable in the future. A style guide will help you to address usability, the user experience, design consistency, and online trends in an organized and consistent manner.

The Avada Website Builder has a vast array of features and styling options; however, you do not need to use all of them for your website, and this is where your style guide comes in. Decide upfront which styling options align with your brand and which design features are needed to make your website stand out.

Performance & Optimization

Optimizing your websites for page load speed can be a seemingly complex subject because so many different facets affect how fast a page loads. It can range from the server’s speed to the options and settings selected, right through to the type and amount of content and even the size of the images added to the page or post.

The Avada Performance Wizard

The Performance Wizard takes the guesswork out of how to best optimize your Avada website. To get you started you are presented with a step-by-step interface that will guide you through the process.

Performance Wizard Start Screen

What is important to note is that you should build your website first before running the Performance Wizard. Creating your website’s structure, placing design elements in situ, and formulating content ensures that the system has something to work with when searching for recommendations at each step of the process. The recommendations provided are for options that can be disabled or enabled to enhance overall performance.

  • Features
    Disable any features not used on the website, thereby reducing the amount of code that is loaded.

  • Avada Icons
    Scan your website for information about icons that are being used. You can also disable unused icon sets and discover how to optimize existing icons.

  • Avada Fonts/Typography
    Check which fonts are being loaded on your website and then optimize how those fonts are served. Fewer variants will mean fewer requests and, therefore, faster loading times.

  • Avada Elements
    Scan your website to discover which Design, Layout, and Form Elements are not used on the website. Disable unused Elements, thereby reducing the amount of code that is loaded.

  • Optimization
    Optimize how the website’s CSS and JS assets should be enqueued. These options can have a significant impact on the performance of the page load. However, some of these options can also break functionality if you use a caching plugin, so proceed with caution.

Above The Fold Optimization

“Above the fold” is the part of a webpage that is immediately visible on your desktop or mobile screen without scrolling down. Traditionally, this digital real estate is where most would choose to display attention-grabbing headlines, important sales/marketing content, images, and even slider plugins as part of the page’s hero.

Above The Fold Optimization

The rate of content delivery for a website, and in particular the perceived speed experienced by the end-user on a mobile device, is at the heart of Google’s Core Web Vitals. Thus, passing Core Web Vitals inevitably leads to a delicate balance between good SEO, attention marketing, and page load times for a website owner.

To assist you with managing your website’s performance and optimization, our team introduced purpose-built tools and features for Avada that can make it possible for you to fine-tune your website’s performance on mobile & desktop.

Generate Critical CSS

Critical CSS is a convenient performance feature. You can enable Critical CSS by going to the Performance Wizard > Optimization tab. Once it has been enabled, you can access the Critical CSS page from the WordPress sidebar at Avada > Critical CSS or Maintenance > Critical CSS from the Avada Dashboard. Both take you to the Critical CSS page to generate Critical CSS for both pages and posts.

Critical CSS

Critical CSS is the CSS necessary to style the above-the-fold content. When generated for a page, it will be loaded into the page head, and the rest of the CSS styles moved to the footer, resulting in less render-blocking and a faster page load time.

Resources

Even with all of the performance options provided, Avada plays a lesser part than you might imagine when it comes to site optimization. Websites running Avada as the primary WordPress theme can be configured to optimize the layouts and structure that can lead to vastly improved page load scores. Still, ultimately, user content will principally dictate how fast and efficient your website will perform according to Google Core Web Vitals.

The color palette selected for the Avada Nutritionist prebuilt website is a selection of bright colors, as seen above. If you would like to change the Avada Nutritionist color palette, this can be done within the options panel, as explained in this help file and video.

Color increases brand recognition, and it can influence people in how they feel about a website. Colors produce different emotions in people, making it essential to choose the right colors for your website. The balance of white space, contrast, and well thought out color schemes are vital elements of good web design. If you have not already decided on your brand colors, choosing a color palette for your website can be confusing. However, using a handy tool like the Adobe Color Wheel or any of the myriad of app choices online, you can undoubtedly make this task effortless.

Typography

Website Typography can be more important than you realize, from your brand and user perspective to your website’s overall look and style. It is often underrated and is, in fact, an art form and technique in itself. The following HubSpot guide to website typography will give you some great insights into the do’s and dont’s choosing which fonts work best for your Avada website.

The Avada Website Builder has a vast array of Typography controls, options, and font selections to make your job easier. See this detailed help file and video to get you started.

To Get Started You Will Need The Following

To get started with the Avada Website Builder and to create your ideal website, there are a few things that you will need;

Recommended Plugins

What are recommended plugins, and do you need them? In short, it is not the end of the world if you choose not to install and activate the plugins used with any particular Avada prebuilt website. Let’s take the Avada Nutritionist prebuilt website for example: It is created as a WooCommerce focussed site, and therefore the WooCommerce plugin should be installed and activated at the point of installing the prebuilt site.

If you decide not to install the WooCommerce plugin, the full site will still be imported, but the eCommerce aspect will not be active. The following plugins have been used with the Avada Nutritionist website:

WooCommerce

What is a Prebuilt Website?

Avada prebuilt websites and prebuilt content layouts (individual page or post content, layout sections, Call-to-actions, etc.) are carefully crafted by our talented team of designers to give you, the Avada user, a way to save time when prototyping a new website.

Avada’s prebuilt websites are a fantastic resource for creativity and inspiration. They will make web design a more efficient and productive process for beginners, marketers, and professionals alike. Here are some essential facts:

  • They are created to save you time when building a new website.

Website Structure

A page or post structure is divided into four main sections: the Header, the Page Title Bar, Content, and the Footer. With the Avada Website Builder, you can independently edit each of these sections to create super flexible and stunning layout designs.

Below is a list of the Avada Nutritionist pages and posts that have been prebuilt just for you. Once installed, you can change all aspects of each Layout, and at any time, add new pages to suit your online business needs.

Explaining Layouts & Layout Sections

Before we look at the specific Layouts on the Avada Nutritionist prebuilt website, the first thing to understand is the Layouts and Layout Sections’ architecture. You can think of Layouts as a container for the page content. In contrast, the actual content comes from the various Layout Sections. There are four Layout Sections on a page – the Header, Page Title Bar, Content, and Footer Layout Sections.

There is a default Global Layout, and any Layout Sections added to that will be shown on all pages of your website. There are Conditional Layouts with conditional logic to determine how the Layout will be used.

You can make as many Layouts and Layout Sections as you like, and you can use the Layout Sections in multiple Layouts. But you can only use a specific condition on a single Layout, so the theme knows which one to use.

See Understanding Layouts & Layout Sections and Understanding Conditional Layouts for more info.

Avada Layout Sections Legend

Explaining WordPress Pages vs. Posts

Website pages are allocated for static content such as your website’s homepage, about, contact page, and so on, and are timeless entities.

Website posts are allocated to blog content listed in reverse (newest to the oldest) chronological order and are timely. Older posts are archived based on month and year. You can also create content for custom post types or CPT. In Avada, an example of this is the Portfolio post type. Check out this detailed WordPress article for more information.

What Can I Change? Is the Design Flexible?

The Avada Nutritionist prebuilt website is exactly that, prebuilt, for you. If the design and style suit your website needs, you can use it as a starting point, and you can change as much or as little as you need to.

The most obvious details that you will want to change at first is the website’s wording, titles, color scheme, and images. You can choose to leave the overall layouts as is or Drag and Drop to rearrange the content’s order. Further to that, you can add or remove any of the Design Elements to fine-tune your preferred business narrative. In short, you can change every single aspect of the prebuilt website’s Layout and content.

Editing a page’s content and layouts is done using the Drag and Drop live editor or using the traditional back-end method. The first image below shows the Live visual Drag and Drop editor is used to edit the content:

A Side By Side Comparison (Builder vs. No Builder)

We have created a side by side point of reference that illustrates the differences in building a website using the Avada Website Builder to design custom Layouts vs. not using The Avada Website Builder and only using predefined options. The latter will allow you only to build a basic site, in comparison.

Exploring The Homepage Layout

Website pages are allocated for static content such as your website’s homepage, about, contact page, and so on, and are timeless entities.

Website posts are allocated to blog content listed in reverse (newest to the oldest) chronological order and are timely. Older posts are archived based on month and year. You can also create content for custom post types or CPT. In Avada, an example of this is the Portfolio post type. Check out this detailed WordPress article for more information.

The Header

For the Avada Nutritionist prebuilt website, the Header was created using the Avada Header Builder and is set globally across the website. This means that every page and post will use the same Header layout without any further conditions set. For example, you can change this if required by creating a unique Header layout for different pages or posts. You can check how this is structured on the backend by clicking this link.

Avada Nutritionist Header

The Page Content

The content part of the homepage, the area between the Header and Footer, does not use a page title bar. You can change this page’s content in an infinite number of ways to best suit your business marketing and brand requirements.

Page and Post content is structured using Container and Column Elements, and if required, Nested Columns. Check out the help file links below for detailed information and videos explaining what they are and how to use them:

  • What are Containers, and how to use them? Read more here.
  • What are Columns, and how to use them? Read more here.
  • What are Nested Columns, and how to use them? Read more here.

The Hero

Avada Nutritionist Hero

Instead of using a traditional image slider, like the Avada Slider, Slider Revolution or Layer Slider, as the above-the-fold hero section, this prebuilt site uses a Container with a Background Image. Added to the container is a 2/3 (66.67% width) Column with two Title Elements, a Text Block Element, and two Button Elements.

Below this you will find a 2/3 (66.67% width) Column on the Left with one 1/3 (33.33% width) Column on the right. The Left Column contains two Title Elements, a Text Block Element, and two Button Elements and the Column on the Right has two Image Elements, a Title Element and Text Block Element.

Important to note here is that the Left Column’s Column Visibility is set to “Small Screen”. For this example, the Column will only be displayed once the screen size is smaller than 780px. This is set under Avada > Options > Responsive > Element Responsive Breakpoints. See this help file for more information.

This section starts with a Container. In here you will see a single row of three 1/3 (33.33% width) Columns, each containing the Nested Columns Element, holding one 1/3 (33.33% width) column on the Left and one 2/3 (66.67% width) Column. The Left Column for each has an Image Element and a Title Element and two Text Block Element in the Right.

Some useful functionality to highlight:

  • Element Visibility – You can choose to show or hide a Container, column, or Element on small, medium, or large screens, and you can select more than one at a time. Each of the three sizes has a custom width setting on the Avada Builder Elements tab in the Global Options. Read more here.
  • Responsive Styling – You can set specific styling options independently for different screen sizes. Responsive styling allows you to control settings that correspond to three dimensions, Large (Desktop), Medium (Tablet), and Small (Phone). Read more here.
  • Flexbox – Flexbox is a CSS3 layout model that provides a more efficient way to design, align and distribute space for Columns inside of any Container. Read more here.

More Information – CTA

Avada Nutritionist More Information CTA

A Call-to-action (CTA) is a marketing method designed to prompt an immediate response or encourage a direct sale from your website visitors. There is no hard and fast rule about how you should create them, other than being an attraction and conversion point on your website. Using the Avada Design Elements, you can make any CTA style that you feel will work for your online business.

For this example, the CTA section is made up of three (40% – Left, 10% – Middle and 50% – Right width) Columns side by side. An Image Element, Title Element, Text Block Element, Section Separator Element and Button Element is added to the Left Column, with the Image Element, Element Visibility, set to “Small Screen”. The Middle Column has an Image Element and the Right Column set with only a Background Image.

CTA – Call to Action

Avada Virtual Assistant Main CTA

This section pretty straightforward and easy to replicate. It starts with a Container. Two (1/2 – 50%) width Columns are added to the container, which displays a Title Element on the Left and a Text Block Element, linking to the Recipes page, on the Right.

Below this row are two more rows, each containing four (1/4 – 25%) Columns, each with an Image Element, Title Element and a Text Block Element. For each of these Columns, a Link URL is added, in the Column’s General settings tab, to redirect you to the recipe page for that specific Column.

Subscription Form & Parallax Scrolling

Avada Nutritionist Subscription Form

For this example, the section is built in a Container with background Image with the Background Parallax set to “Down (moves down on desktop and mobile)”. You can read more about Background Parallax Scrolling in this help file.

The Container has a single 5/6 (83.33% width) Column in the middle. Here you will find the Nested Columns Element. Simply put, Nested Columns are Columns within Columns. The Nested Columns contains one 2/5 (40% width) Column that has a Title Element and a Text Block Element, and one 3/5 (60% width) Column containing the Avada Form Element.

The Avada Form Builder is used to design and build this appointment form. The Form Builder is very flexible and allows you to create many types of forms that you can use on your Avada website. For any form that you create, you can add them to a page or post as a single instance or you can set the form to display globally across the website, which then allows you to manage one form. If a form is showing on all pages, for example, and you edit the form, the same changes show across all form instances.

More Information

Avada Nutritionist More Information

In this section, more information is provided. It has a container with two rows of columns, separating the information and structuring for easy editing.

In the first row, there are three Columns. One 1/5 (20% width) Column on the Left, one 3/5 (60% width Column in the Middle and another 1/5 (20% width) Column on the right. The only Column containing any Elements is the Middle Column with a Title Element and a Text Block Element.

The second row of Columns are three 1/3 (33.33% width) Columns, each with an Image Element, Title Element and a Text Block Element. For each of these Columns, a Background Color is set, which creates visual separation of the Column content.

Visual CTA’s

Avada Nutritionist Visual CTA

Using images as a way to highlight a call-to-action or for advertizing and promotion reasons is standard practice, and the Avada Website Builder makes this task even easier for you. To create this section, a Container Element is added to the page content. To create the style, two 1/2 (50% width) Columns are added to the Container, and each Column then has an image selected as the background overlay. Each Column houses a Title Element, a Text Block Element, and then a Button Element. Padding and margin options are set for each Column to create that visual placement.

The final point to highlight is that each of the two columns is a clickable area by enabling the Link URL option within the Column Element settings.

Depending on the marketing goal, CTA’s can drive a variety of different actions and results for your website visitors. Check this article for some CTA inspiration, 39 Call-to-Action Examples You Can’t Help But Click.

Latest Guide

Avada Nutritionist Latest Guide

This section starts off with a Container and two 1/2(50% width) Columns. A Title Element on the Left and a Text Block Element on the Right.

In the next row we have two more 1/2 (50% width) Columns. There is an Icon Element in the Left with a Background Image. In this example, the Column settings for the Link URL, in the General tab, is set to open the relevant page that contains the full information of this section. In the third row, there is a single 1/1 (100% width) Column with a Section Separator Element. For the Last row, three 1/3 (33.33% width) Columns are used. Each of them represents a Nested Columns Element, Title Element and a Text Block Element.

Using the versatile Nested Column Element, you have one 1/1 (100% width) Columns with an Icon Element and a Background Image. In this example the method is used to overlay a Background Image for a single Element without it effecting the main Column.

A website footer aims to help visitors by providing appropriate information and navigation options at the bottom of website pages. Website footer design is underrated and more valuable to your website than you may think and is essential to the overall end-user experience. Three key points stand out, namely:

  • A footer should provide a website visitor with additional choices. If you want people to sign up for your mailing list, view a product demo, or contact you, inviting them at the end of a scroll is a compelling call to action.
  • A footer should create a path for continued engagement by including navigation links to products, services, or other parts of your website.
  • A footer can access essential information like ways to contact your company and customer services, privacy statements, and potential legal disclaimers.

For the Avada Nutritionist prebuilt website, the Footer was created using the Avada Footer Builder and this particular Footer content and Layout is set to display globally across the website. This means that every page and post will use the same Footer layout without any further conditions set. For example, you can change this if required by creating a unique Footer layout for different pages or posts. Let us take a closer look below:

Footer Visual CTA
